Pretty OK. Found a couple of bugs, but they're now fixed.

Which version are you running? Somewhere between 1.9.9 and trunk. Pools are between 1.9.5 through to head version.


Evertyhing is fine, nothing to report.


Everything is running smoothing in production

Questions about 1.9.9.


Everything is OK in production

Planning to upgrade to 1.9.5-21; currently 1.9.5-17 and -19, planning to upgrade to 1.9.5-21.

Questions 1.9.9

Tigran sent a link yesterday but this doesn't seem to work.

The image is working for Tigran. Perhaps it's a problem with the web-se

Enstore+Chimera. Fermi are testing with NFS v3. Is this a problem for using NFS v4?

The client library had a work-around for a bug in apache as the absence of a HTTP header as indicating that the file has zero size.

Can fix this in dCache. It shouldn't break anything else.

CERN filesystem: cdmss. It's an RPM you install. Haven't been able to . Needs an HTTP URL to work. Use squid servers.

Trying to mount with davFS or fuse-dav.
